Here’s the video text:
“It’s hard to believe that I’m going to say something about the most powerful man in the greatest country in the world, but probably like a lot of you, I was somewhat surprised that the President—the President of the United States came out attacking NFL players for them exercising the Freedom of Speech.
While I don’t condone the protesting during our National Anthem, THIS IS AMERICA!
If our country stands for anything, folks, what—it’s freedom. People died for that freedom. I’m not sure if our president understands those rights—that every American has the right to speak out, and also to protest.
Believe me—these athletes DO love this great country of ours.
Personally, I think our president should concentrate on serious issues like North Korea and healthcare rather than ripping into athletes and the NFL.”
The Pittsburgh Steelers quarterback and Pro-Football Hall of Fame recipient spoke the thoughts of millions of Americans on Sunday. Thank you, Terry Bradshaw.
